Riot City Blues is the eighth studio album by Scottish rock band Primal Scream, released on 5 June 2006 by Columbia Records. With this album, the band left behind the electronic elements they had used on their previous albums XTRMNTR (2000) and Evil Heat (2003), returning to more traditional rock and roll.

CD1 includes original Riot City Blues album (Tracks 1-1 to 1-10) with six bonus tracks. Bonus CD includes an additional seven b-sides, remixes and tracks released only on singles.

After various adventures in electronica, Riot City Blues is Primal Scream’s return to straightforward rock and blues. They’ve done it before but never while sounding so vital or natural. Setting the tone, Country Girl is rousing, irrepressible and charged by some fierce mandolin playing, while the scuzzy garage-glam of Dolls highlights the appealing rawness and spontaneity to the album. It wouldn’t be a Primal Scream record without a disarming moment of tenderness though, and the country-gospel of Sometimes I Feel So Lonely fills that slot gracefully. Riot City Blues Primal Scream.

Riot City Blues' is Primal Scream's follow-up album to the electro-tinged Evil Heat, although it could easily be compared in style and content to their 1994 masterpiece Give Out But Don't Give In. Bluesy, punky swagger and New York Dolls-esque melodies abound, marking this album out as a more organic affair than Bobby Gillespie & Co's previous two albums. Includes the single 'Country Girl'. Recorded at London's Olympic Studios and produced by former Killing Joke bassist Youth.

At one end of the musical palette is " We're Gonna Boogie," which feels like it could come straight from a Delta bluesman. The tune's harmonica, stripped-down guitars, and minimal drums mark a very distinct change in the band's sound, which would usually incorporate a series of hypnotic effects.

Riot City Blues would make a wonderful addition to any pub’s jukebox, but it’s galling how ordinary Primal Scream sound when they’re not crackling with the sparks of invention that coloured a record like Screamadelica. 23. It's as if Primal Scream have run completely out of ideas and so they've reverted to the detestable fallbacks of honking harmonicas and bar-band choogles, acting like college freshmen who just discovered blues.
